    Five Independent Doha Restaurants Doing Home Delivery

    This post is dedicated to the independent Doha restaurants and cafes who are still putting together out the great food and keeping us fed and watered. It seems like we have been doing this self isolation thing a very long time. And perhaps we have. There is no denying times are tough for many and the hospitality industry has been doing it tougher than most.

And with working long hours in the office(well for me anyway) all of them have also been a lifesaver. So for when you just can’t make…

New happy hours, new restaurants and a couple of surprises – here is the list you have been waiting for… La Bodega Negra Hot off the plane from London’s Soho, this Mexican joint has won me over with its atmosphere and well executed food.

    Five Great Restaurants to Try That Are Not in West Bay or The Pearl

The options include – Spanish, Thai, brunch classics, Brazilian meat palace and a homegown Qatari concept. And all have the Life on the Wedge seal of approval. So grab your friends and get out there and try these gems (and if those mates don’t want to go that far, question whether or not they are REALLY your friends) – maybe add in a nearby happy hour…

    Nine Places in Qatar With Gluten Free Dining Options

    Dining out in Qatar when you are gluten free can be a minefield. But the good news is that restaurants and cafes in Qatar are finally starting to cater to special diets like those who are gluten free as well as food intolerances. This is not only great for those who previously have been left scrambling, it also makes great business sense. While I am lucky not to have to deal with any major allergies (as a food blogger this is a blessing!), this post is in response to many requests from readers who wanted to know what their gluten free options were. It was an enlightening experience for me…

    Life on the Wedge’s Best Doha Restaurant Dishes of 2018

    I made my list…I checked it twice. What a year 2018 was – a slew of new restaurant openings at all price points, some old favorites getting their groove back and even a few falling by the wayside.

This is a great reflection of the best of my year in dining – splurge worthy experiences as well as well executed food made with genuine passion, regardless of the price point. As…
